Ode To A Bird On A Balcony Outside The Lucky 2 Hotel

Posted by Nancy on March 31, 2008

I heard a bird with robust song,

Of unknown species, feather, hue,

Outside my window all night long;

Where will he go, what does he do?

I ponder on an eagle or a raven or a hawk,

Birds of a different land that have a different “talk.”

I only ask when you take flight,

Go somewhere else to “Squawk!” tonight.

And take that cat in heat wandering around down there somewhere with you when you go.
